Maricat 14ft : What are they like to sail ?

Despite just purchasing a mirror dinghy, I may be in a position to obtain a Maricat in reasonable condition.

What are they like to sail & rig ?

Any advice appreciated.

( and any tips on how how to sell this idea to the wife as I already have a 6x4 builders trailer, 13ft canoe and a mirror dinghy in the front yard )

Is this a 4.3, if so they are a blast for very little outlay.

Shouldn't cost you too much but check the bottom of the hull, it's quite common for the gelcoat to have been rubbed away causing holes, easy to repair (slap on a couple of lengths of fibreglass tape - but I'd suggest you use epoxy as the glue). Set of new stays cost me $80 and a new dolphin striker cable $30.

Ask Darcy about anything, he probably has what you might need.

Make sure it has racing rudders not the stupid beach disks.

eg mine cost me $600 then another 180 to get the trailer retyred and registered and then $850 for a new Tasker sail which, while not being the best does get me into the fleet for racing.

Get the stay lengths from Darcy (I think it's 5.5m forestays and 5 sides but I might be wrong). The rake that generates means that you may need to get a new clew sewn into the sail a bit higher up but this means you're less likely to go down the mine (at least not as regularly).

You don't say where you are but if on the NSW Central Coast pop into Mannering Park on a Saturday and have a chat.

Should be rigid with the tendency to twist minimised. 3 things ensure this:

Beams have a tight mating fit to the hulls. Rebog with polyester resin and micro balloon filler if necessary. Ensure bolts are tight (but don’t overdo otherwise you will strip the threaded aluminium blocks embedded in the hull). The dolphin striker should be set at a tension that the main beam has a bend 5 to 8mm higher at the mast step than it would otherwise have with no dolphin striker tension. When normal rig loads are applied when sailing (main sheet hard on) the beam will then come to its correct level.
